A nice and affordable Mexican Buffet in an interesting place. Good and assorted food. You may experience some Mariachi music during your meal.

Fantastic. Super friendly. Great decor. So visited by locals that you should think twice about dinner on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. They have a great bar area in which they offer live music. Overall a great venue!

While in El Paso I ate at several Mexican restaurants. The fajitas were well cooked but not full of flavor. The flour tortillas are very good and the beers are cold.

We've been to Carlos & Mickey's a number of times when we are in the El Paso area. First introduced to it by a Mexican driver when asked where is the best place for "Mexican" food. It's the first name that rolled off his tongue. And it's the only place we go. The atmosphere is authentic, the food is fantastic... More

Visited this restaurant during a brief visit to El Paso, and we were glad that we took notice of previous reviews. The 45-minute wait for a table for two was well worth it - the service was excellent, our food arrived quickly and was extremely authentic and tasty. The place was packed, and there was a lovely atmosphere - largely... More

The restaurant was recommended by the staff at an airport area hotel. They were spot on with the advice. The place was busy, yet a table was available. The food was delicious and the servings were really too much. Would definitely recommend and will be back olif the opportunity presents.

An El Paso staple! If you are in town for a few days, and want an authentic mexican experience, stop by Carlos and Mickeys! (and order a margarita) they are famous for them and I definitely know why! The enchiladas, and tortilla soup are my favorite but everything is so yummy! Enjoy!

How is this place one of the top restaurants in El Paso. Flavorless salsa, refried beans tasted like they were from a can. I had the taco al pastor. They were dry and not spicy at all. Carlos's was a huge let down.
